Children and Young Adult Literature Research Guide


Several periodicals and scholarly journals either are devoted to, or have frequent articles on, children's literature. The most important of these are listed here. (* means currently received in print format. Links are to the periodical's own website.)

Articles and Databases

Check the Finding Articles tab to identify articles about specific topics and links to full text of many of the articles.

A good start is to type "children's literature" (including quotes) into Articles+.  If we don't have the item at HSU, place an interlibrary loan for the article.
